Ok, remind me not to be anywhere near the road on which you all are
driving. The reason I haven't noticed this is that I toss the phone on
the dash while in motion. Oh, and I might have DR turned off for power
I think you've nailed the bug well, I suspect that I'm not recording the
last beaconed course and speed for the purposes of DR, but am actually
using the most current values from the GPS, but only for ME (obviously I
don't have a more current course and speed for anyone else). I know I
have the last beaconed position, but I really didn't think I was
painting a station there, but I'm not surprised about the one at the
moving end of the DR line, it makes sense.
I'll see if I can remember to do something about this and then take my
phone for a walk to test it.
And remember, KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD! APRSISCE/32 doesn't do the
"glass cockpit" thing yet! <grin>

I imagine that if one were to go to a parking lot and drive in a large circle at the right speed they could get the DR icon to pass through a full 360 degree arc outside the actual current location....

>information available to the program in relation to course and speed... when receiving another station all you have is the information that it beaconed, or that was calculated, depending on how APRSIS is configured, so the DR line goes in one direction until expiration or a new beacon is recieved.

>When DRing your self, the program has updated information on course and speed every 2-5 seconds, and changes the DR line accordingly... Travel at 30mph, and then as soon as the beacon goes out, count to 5 and then come to a stop as if stopping at a stop light, you'll watch your DR icon travel backwards. Just dont' hit anything.
